DuPont Pioneer has worked with Float Mobile Learning on designing and building mobile applications that provide key information to Pioneer growers that are literally “in the field.”
Following are two of the custom mobile applications built specifically for this leading force in agriculture.
Pioneer Planting Rate Estimator
Growers can use the Pioneer Planting Rate Estimator to examine historical yield response curves to help estimate an optimum planting rate for Pioneer-brand corn products.
In Float’s mobile agriculture environmental scans, 94 percent of farmers were said to have a smartphone or mobile phone. DuPont Pioneer understood the need for their farmers to receive performance support in the field.
In this app, growers can learn the estimated economic planting rate and estimated harvest population for maximum yield about their particular hybrid family. Each estimate is displayed in two formats – a chart and a graph.
Growers can also edit the seed cost and grain price to their liking, favorite specific hybrids, email rates to others, and print the data.
Pioneer Trade Show Application
Pioneer sales representatives on the road are always up to date about the company’s complex and ever-changing product line thanks to Float’s custom trade show application.
These sales reps attend dozens of trade shows and events annually. Using an iPad, reps can quickly access sales materials specific to the customer’s or the prospect’s agricultural needs.
Reps are able to quickly retrieve information with just a few taps, and then immediately contact the customer or prospect with relevant sales information on the spot from the floor.
By using the mobile application, Pioneer and Float promote a green approach to trade shows. This sustainable, reusable app means that reps no longer need to haul cases of more than 50 different product brochures to their events.
